Concerto performance with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra
Sunday, June 20, 2021
The experience of performing with an orchestra is of paramount importance in building
a career in the music profession. With this in mind, PianoTexas is one of the very few international festivals to feature very young pianists in
a public concert with a major professional orchestra. Whilst participation in the
Concerto selection is not mandatory, PianoTexas recommends that Junior Performers take advantage of this rare opportunity.
Rehearsals with a second piano is scheduled and a distinguished jury select the performers
for the Concerto Concert with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra.
Due to the restrictions demanded for social distancing, the repertoire for the Concerto
Concert is limited.

long) should be selected from the following Concerto list:
- Bach: All Concertos
